Visitors learn the ropes at Tilton bell ringing open day

Have your say

A recent bell ringing open day held at Tilton’s St Peter’s Church struck a chord with 40 attendees who had a go at tolling a bell and ringing some handbells.

Six bell ringers took 45 minutes to ring a quarter peel on the day and refreshments were also served.

l A talk on the art of bell ringing will be given at St Mary the Virgin Church, Thorpe Arnold, by tower captain Martin Hansen on Wednesday, June 3, 7pm-8pm.

The talk, which will include a ringing demonstration, is free admission. Refreshments will be served afterwards. For details call Martin Hansen on (01664) 480120.
